Festival: 2015

My final degree collection is innovative and experimental including Embroidery and Multi Media designs. I have a strong appreciation for hand craft which I enjoy combining with digital techniques. The collection explores the contrast between structured and fluid qualities, investigating tension through contracting and relaxing forms. The designs are applicable to both fashion and interiors due to their stimulating and interactive nature. My inspiration stems from natural forms as well as Barbara Hepworth sculptures and the tension lines they withhold. Material investigation was central to the development of the collection exploring different weights including leather, metal and cotton organdie.
